Friday Fiasco: Generic Fonts

Did I mention this was one of my pet peeves? Not only is this a personal pet peeve of mine, but I am going to consider it a violation of Marketing 101.

Generic Fonts

When creating a new marketing campaign, advertisement or logo, it is best to refrain from using what I term as “generic fonts.”

Why?

Because creativity and personalizing your brand in a unique way is key. Sure, there are times when the use of general fonts can be applied (keep it to the boardroom, please); but when launching a major brand campaign or introducing your brand, personalizing details even down to graphic elements such as fonts all play a major role in staying uniquely recognizable.

Of course, other marketing initiatives must fall in line with staying at the top of your communication and engagement game.

Google Fonts provides a wide range of fonts you can utilize and integrate within your website design and more. There are also several other websites and programs that allow you to download unique fonts as well as programs that you can use to create a custom font for you and your business marketing goals and brand campaigns.

So please, as you embark on your next big brand campaign, let’s stay away from Papyrus, m’kay?

Redefine Your Business in a Transitioning Economy

Kaye Brown discusses the transitioning economy, emerging business strategies, and how we can dynamically adapt our business and careers to the fluid environment. Originally blogged on HerMuse

All too often, crisis moments hit our businesses and our credibility hard. Although the wavering economy may have had the best of us a bit shaken and adjusting our numbers, strategies, and client services, it is how we respond to the blow that makes or breaks our forward success.

Woman Standing in a FieldEven with a majorly transitioning economy, businesses and professionals are growing their services and networks and are also finding creative ways to stand out in the crowd and – well – put food on the table. So with a flustering economy that somehow fosters growth, how will your professional strategy dynamically change to give you the confidence to step forward and obtain the results you desire?

Understand The Economy and Your Market

Like it or not, the economy is here to stay. But whether it is a good or bad economic situation, your business must have an adjustable strategy that enables you to evaluate and measure the success *or failure* of your initiatives. It is incredibly important to understand how the local and federal economies have affected your business. Don’t rely solely on news reports or the increasing gas prices as evidence of insurmountable change and run to your board room. Get involved with local chambers, attend public meetings, obtain local governmental action plans, discuss civic changes amongst other professionals and businesses, and ultimately evaluate your business numbers to understand exactly how you have been directly impacted. Career Tip: Evaluate & understand employment trends and your career needs. Is the time right to make a move?

Remember Your Passion and Purpose

No matter what environment or strategic plan it is, I always tell my clients to examine their unique DNA – which are the threads of their brand. Take a small step away to remind yourself (and your team) of your professional passion and your unique purpose. It’s simple – let your passions rejuvenate and take a moment to fully understand what YOUR new needs are. Not only should you assess whether new solutions should be provided, but assess the value of your current solutions. Perhaps you should shave a little here, and add a little there. Now you can take the next step forward to clearly identify goals and put them into motion. Career Tip: What value or expertise do you hold? Integrate it into your current position or branch out!

Evaluate the Value of Your Clients and Professional Network

During a crisis, we tend to overlook the unique market we serve. We get so caught up looking at our strategies and numbers that we pass over our built-in safety net – loyal partners, customers and colleagues that are already a valuable part of our existing network. You should evaluate how they’ve been beneficial and responsive to you in the past and reward them accordingly. What you do – giveaways, price breaks, referral discounts, etc – is solely up to you and what your customers’ heart’s desires are. Once you’ve given credit where credit is due, these resources can begin to work for you and help your brand achieve more in an inconclusive economic circumstance. Career Tip: Utilize contacts, colleagues, and available resources to broaden your network – and your knowledge.

Shine KBC SolutionsRedefining yourself or professional strategy doesn’t always mean scrapping everything and starting over. Always remember that you’ve been given a unique passion that has evolved into the unique threads of your brand DNA. Your integration of passionate purpose, strategic response, and utilization of available resources is what ultimately directs the abundance of your new creative space.
